NetEase Games has been working quite diligently on their new VR title called Nostos. This is a cross-platform multiplayer game that allows both PC and VR users to play together in an open world setting. And while everything we’ve seen so far looks pretty crisp, is it worth considering to purchase?
Nostos will bring some familiar looking graphics that is quite recognizable if you’ve played the most recent Legend of Zelda game on the Switch console. You’ll find the similar look with that paper like feel and the shading of the world with a hue tint.
NetEase Games has promised to deliver a new simulation technology of real physical environment, giant and seamless world map, freely moving system and oriental animated film art style build up a “Pioneer” image for the game.
As far as the game goes, you will take on the role of an explorer in Nostos to adventure, combat, build up and save the world with their partners. As you adventure the world, you will notice the unique ecosystem where the time transitions from day to night and also experience all four seasons.
You will advneture in the grasslands, desert, plains, and the snowfields. You will also notice the abundance of exotic creatures that roam the lands, big and small.
As you continue your adventure, you will experience that the seemingly peaceful world is surrounded by toxic coralseas which corrodes the sole habitat. You will have to battle these creatures from the coralseas who are the enemies in the game.
In the game, you will need to survive with limited resources: restore physical strength with food and water, collect materials and build houses, and use melee weapons or long-range firearms to fight against monsters. Meanwhile, you’ll be working with other players on the quest to discover the historical sites,the remains of war and the secrets of the world.
With a series of physics rules in real life being introduced, players can freely explore the game world, climbing cliffs or driving vehicles.
